We've been wondering exactly what Kurt Russell's version of Ego the Living Planet would look like in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and now we finally have an answer. Thank you, Marvel's toy division.

The official design for the Ego action figure from the Marvel Legends line has been revealed, and it shows Russell's character sporting a thick beard and brown robe. Ego is a fairly large player from the cosmic corner of Marvel's universe ... and is also the father of Chris Pratt's Star-Lord. Director James Gunn set up the mystery of Star-Lord's daddy as a major theme in the first film, and now, well, here he is ... looking a lot like R.J. MacReady.

The Marvel Legends action figure set with Ego will be bundled with Star-Lord and is set to hit shelves in August, quite a while after the film hits theaters on May 5. Check out the shots below and let us know what you think.
